Iran has started production at a rate of 85,000 barrels of oil a day from the Yadavaran Field, to test its output sustainability, said administrator of the field’s development project.
The field is jointly held by neighbouring Iraq.
“The field will be inaugurated in near future as production of 85,000 barrels a day has been secured and all of its three production trains are in line,” Hadi Nazarpour (pictured) told Shana.
In Phase-I, light crude will constitute 70,000 bpd, with heavy crude at 15,000 bpd.
Production will increase to 180,000 barrels in Phase-II and 300,000 barrels in Phase-III, Nazarpour added.
Iran’s Ministry of Petroleum has been focusing on production from Yadavaran, North Azadegan, South Azadegan, North Yaran and South Yaran oil fields, all of which Iran shares with Iraq.
